The strange computer behavior restarted minutes ago.
Things are strange under the Finder:
windows does not displays their title bar as the active window,
Unable to use the Finder keyboards shortcuts (beep occurred when keys are depressed),
Click are done some times (not always),
same computer as previously (but 8GB): MacBook Pro 2011-11, 7200rpm internal hard disk,
Boot disk have free space: > 30GB (while running)
Maverick installed less than a month ago,
the external HD is also recent (1.5GB, two partitions, Mavericks 10.9.3),
I was working with data stored in that hard disk (external),
Last application MenuBar is displayed when youre on the Finder (cmd-tab)
three xojo created applications, (build Xojo 2013r3, other versions unknown)
OS X Mavericks 10.9.4
With AppleScript Editor:
tell application “Finder” to quit
then a click in the Finder entry in the Dock squash the bug(s)
[I also quit (before running the script) GIMP, two of two of three Xojo applications.
Two Xojo applications are multimedia applications; the two do nearly the same thing, but were not created with the same Xojo nor the same source code.
The third application deals with RTF; I created it because I was not able to generate rtf files that works with the two other Xojo applications with Apples TextEdit (pure Xojo RTF code, no declare used).
After the previous experiences with these malfunctions, I was sure they appeard because of the Xojo (Real Studio) running applications. That was the very same applications and running under Mt. Lion (or was it Lion ?).
The other malfunction was the mouse click who sometimes were inactive. This also appeared earlier today, but I did not noticed (take it seriously) it as serious malfunction.
At the time, someone (one person at least) told he got the same behavior.
I will let things like that for this evening, probably tomorrow, but I will search the projects and built the three application with Xojo 2014r2, just in case this matters.
BTW: the most recent Xojo built application was running, not I do not use it when the bad behavior appeared. rtf in that application (used only to display the rtf file created with the other Xojo application or not) have the MacLib Declare stuff to read the rtf files (unlike the other Xojo application that I was running and really using (read images, read write taw text files).
I used GIMP to import pdf that holds images to master them, save the results as png. That png file was resized using Preview (better results that the use of one Xojo created application). The resulted files are used to create custom icons (set to folders using copy / paste) and images loaded in the two other Xojo applications.
I nearly forgot: Spotlight index are rebuilding for an external hard disk for the whole afternoon (still 8 minutes to go).
The questions are:
do you use one or more (usually more) than one Xojo application at the same time ?
do you get this kind of troubles with Xojo applications running ?
When I wrote Xojo applications, I do not mean Xojo IDE or project running a project in the IDE. I mean Xojo standalone applications.
At last, I am quite sure that I do not run all these three applicatons together since a long time (probably since the last time I had this trouble).
PS: after a good night sleeping, I just had a question to myself: are the two Xojo applications with the similar feature set share also their creator types ? No, they dont.
